Grandfather Clocks in All Season Rooms

09.15.08

Many homeowners choose to expand their home with all season rooms – allowing them to increase their living space and add value to their home. All season rooms, like their name suggests, are able to be used regardless of the season; a change out in windows transforms the space – screen windows from late spring through mid-fall for a beautiful breezy room in which to entertain and storm windows during the colder months so you can still feel as though you are outside but are comfortable in terms of temperature.

Decorating all season rooms is part of the fun of having them to begin with; they are rooms in which you can really express your personal style. Perhaps you would like a lovely sitting area in which you and your guests can sit and enjoy a cocktail, or an extra eating area for everything from barbecues to breakfast. All season rooms allow homeowners to use their homes in a new and different way and really bring the outdoors inside.

But in decorating this space it is very important to do it in a way that allows the room to flow seamlessly with the rest of the home; it should not look like an addendum, it should like it was always a part of the house. To this end, more permanent pieces can help transform an all season room into an actual room. A piece such a grandfather clock is a classic piece that will help to anchor what is normally considered to be a “transitory” room. Grandfather clocks help create a focal point in a room and transform it into something solid and permanent – like the grandfather clock itself.
